The Treasurer’s Office has compiled the following guidelines concerning our services and your obligations, this brief summary of state and local taxes should be especially informative to the new residents of our locality. We welcome your inquiries, and we want to assist you in any way possible.
History of the Office of Treasurer
The Treasurer is an elected official directly responsible to the citizens of the locality for the receipt and collection of revenue, the safekeeping of revenue, and the appropriate accounting for and disbursements of revenue. The Treasurer serves a four-year term at the will of the voters.
The governing body of our locality sets the tax rates for personal property and real estate taxes. Personal property is assessed as of January 1st each year by the Commissioner of Revenue, based on Loan Value per NADA Book. The assessment is based on vehicles in the taxpayer’s possession and normally garaged, parked, or stored in the locality as of January 1st. The assessment of real estate taxes is based on fair market value.
Real Estate Taxes
Real property is assessed as of January 1st each year. Real estate is due semi-annually on June 5th and December 5th. A late payment penalty of 10 percent or $10.00 which ever is greater will be added after June 5th and December 5th. Interest at the rate of 10 percent per annum will be added beginning June 6th and December 6th. Failure to receive a tax bill will not relieve you of the penalty and interest. If there is a change of the billing address or any change pertaining to your taxes notify the Treasurer’s Office. We will forward a copy of the tax bill to a mortgage company if the company requests it in writing at least 90 days before the payment is due.
Senior Citizen Real Estate Tax Relief
Your County Government provides a tax relief program for the elderly, based on income and net worth. The Commissioner of Revenue administers this program, and applications must be filed yearly by April 1st.
